Joseph Wallis found in:

Irish & British Immigrants to America, 1873 - 1879 Passenger and Immigration Lists Volume 3
Age:  30     
Gender:  Male     
Occupation:  Laborer     
Country of Origin:  England     
Last Residence:  Unknown

Ship's Name:  Erin

He is listed as a "miner" and is found on subsequent US census in Pennsylvania.  One gives his arrival date as 1878, another 1871.  He traveled alone.

Any interest?

No sign of him in New Jersey.

Does anyone have access to ships passenger lists for potato famine years, 1845 to 1850?  Looking for John Jenkins born 1797 to 1817 and his family.  He would have been traveling with wife Mary/Maria (B) 1804 to 1816, and sons John, Charles,Ralph and maybe dau. Eliza. (This is Eliza not Elizabeth).  They left Ire. during that time .  Don't know if they left from Ire. or Eng. port or if went to Canada or U.S. port but ended up in mid 1850 in N.Y.  Maybe traveling w/them were Dwyers and a Catherine Hanson.  Help!                       Leagen
